Thirty years of Badgerline celebrated
First West of England has painted one of its buses in the familiar yellow and green Badgerline colour scheme, complete with giant badger, to celebrate the company’s launch in 1985.
The first opportunity to view it and other heritage vehicles painted in Badgerline colours was at a small gathering on Saturday 8 August at Wells Bus Depot, Priory Road, Wells. On Sunday 9 August the bus appeared alongside First’s famous Bio Bus at the bus event at Brislington Park & Ride site in Bristol.
MD of First West of England James Freeman, said, ‘It is with much pride that we celebrate the launch of one of the key ingredients that created First as it is today. This bus looks really smart and we hope it inspires a sense of nostalgia from our customers and pride amongst our staff.’
